I would unplug it not very safe to use, if it smoke, and where there smoke there a fire.

Since its a washer not a dryer I would say that something got water on a IC board and it about to short out.

Maytag frontloading washer - MAH4000AWW- after last load, when I opened the door, there was a slight burning smell and a little smoke - could it be a belt? the motor?


Usually this a sign that the bearings are slowly starting to cease not dangerous but eventually will get louder as time goes by

The washine machine finished it's cycle but there was smoke coming out of the drum and a burning rubber smell


The usual cause of smoke coming out of drum is that the heater element has come on or stayed on with no water in the drum
Try it on a spin cycle only, if smoke still comes out of drum, then could be a faulty pump, or main motor is burning.

Door of indesit washing machine no opening model no WM12X


First thing if this unit has an electric lock you probably open the door at the wrong time and threw it out of sync. First try to do another load from the beginning cycle and let it finish. If this don't work unplug your machine and then try. I hope this helps you.

2 things you may try if you haven't already ..let washer fill with hot water ..pause and open door pour in about 2 cups chlorine bleach before starting back up..with rag soaked in bleach/water clean inside front door boot ..be sure to roll boot toward front and clean out accumilation under it wash as much as possible off door seal..allow to finish cycle (normal wash should be fine)..may also try removing lower panel remove pump acess plug and clean pump out thoroughly..you are not alone ALL front washer have same issue and if some sort of routine cleaning isn't done problem reoccurs also leaving door slightly open between usues will help ..by the way that is a german made washer

Smoke smell coming from my 80 series Washer


do you actually see smoke or is it you have a burning smell
if you have a smell the motor may be overloading on spin
sometimes this is due to too much soap powder in wash
and when machine spins the water cant get away due to soap suds under and around bowl
acts like a brake on motor
try no soap powder in next wash
a good way to tell is that you still have soap in washing if you lift the lid (with no soap powder added)
